Literacy in first grade can look like many things. Ask one of our first graders what literacy is and they will tell you many things, but the most important is learning to read and write well!
As I looked around our room today, I had a moment of true joy! Every learner was engaged and working hard to improve their literacy skills. Some students were working in a small group, some were working on spelling, some were reading independently, while others were playing literacy games on our new iPad!
It is so exciting to see our learners gaining independence and taking responsibility for their learning. Ask your first grader what they like best about literacy!
